as i told you yesterday in the presidential race, in florida has yet to be called here is the absentee ballot voting delay to push right on the floor of the election. we don't know where the 29 electoral votes will go but have made every outcome of the presidential election. back to the topic here. what was your message to washington? a lot of newspaper articles this morning about the fiscal the cliff and that is what faces -- >> we will leave this portion of this morning's washington journal now to go live to the american enterprise institute for panel discussions on the election with fox news channel commentator michael barone, inside out columnist norman borkenstein and others. it is just beginning. this is live coverage from c-span2. >> to start the aei series in 1982. he is with us here today been lautenberg and the late richard scamen were the people to look at the intersection of democracy and public often opinion data in the 1970 book "the real majority." they told us how important changing demographics would be to future e elections come indigenous election de pass braking ins
, iowa. mitt romney also with a hectic schedule today campaigning in sanford, florida, then traveling to virginia for rallies in lynchburg and fairfax. later he's in columbus, ohio, and wraps up his campaign in manchester, new hampshire. tonight over on c-span we'll have live coverage of both candidates' final campaign rallies. that gets underway this evening at 10:50 eastern. c-span asked reporters from around the country what they'll be watching for tomorrow on election night. here's what a few of them had to say. >> i'm going to be watching the democratic margin in broward, dade and palm beach counties. it is critical for the president that he has very large numbers in those counties. that's where he builds up his lead. in 2008 the president won 14 of 67 counties. so he -- and, obviously, the more populace counties are the ones he won, but he needs to really win big in those counties by several hundred thousand votes. you know, the south florida margin in 2008 was 535,000 votes. and, you know, if he doesn't, if he doesn't do well in south florida, he's going the lose. he's going to
, florida, where they have the republican convention, to charlotte where democrats had their convention, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that's 26 cds. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is a president of the united states that has minimal interaction with congress. and particularly someone of his own party. and when you, let's just forget republicans and let's forget tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill as all of you to around all the time and ask members of the democratic at how much personal interaction you have with the president. and i have, you know, i hate giving political credit for anything, but they had that piece back in may. just pointed out that the president, as of may when that article was written, had not had a single conversation this year with this year weedeater kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee, or tom harkin, the chairman of the senate health education labor binge committee. phone or in person this year. now, you can talk about tea party
that they were as many democrats to come out and vote as there were. osceola county, florida for example and i know you are very familiar in the orlando area but it's kind of the poster child for places where republicans were just not anticipating this huge new latino routine population would vote and that latino population had a very big down ballett affect as well. democrats one house races in places like a roar of illinois and places like san antonio's texas and even miami-dade. one of the most surprising results out of florida to me the reason obama was able to head off the floor of is the non-cubic hispanics in miami-dade and obama have a higher share of the vote in miami than in 2008 for the rest of the state particularly in the panhandle was going the opposite direction away from the president so very surprising. >> among the people we were talking to about as well as you could have and mitt romney won 59% of white voters even more than ronald reagan in 1980. he did better among the college whites than i expected as i said the college whites share for obama have gone with this conversio
and arizona and florida out of the business of telling us, and iowa, how we're going to raise hands and produce eggs and how we're going to raise cattle and raise hogs. that's an important piece that as many fight in this campaign to go to have a lot of play in the press but that something was got to hold in the farm bill and that's another reason i want to get it to conference by the end of the year. >> i do hope that the farm bill comes to four, this bill, i hope it's an open robe that the amendments, process can take place to i would anticipate conservatives bring an amendment to split the component from the agriculture component that i don't get the votes for it but once and for all let's at least start to have this debate. severing of foodstamp provision of all the ag policies. since i'm surrounded by kansas, iowa, north dakota, would you gentlemen like to speak as will? >> well, speaking as one who campaigned very strongly in support in, strong support of the proposed bill without apology, i can tell you that the farmers of north dakota like the house bill just fine. not only
've made up our mind. we're going to zero this out. i said i'm going to bring an amendment to the florida house of representatives were going to overturn this. they laughed and said you're new around here, aren't you? were going to send to the party and tell them you can try, but she'll fail. i would not have worked with souls on both sides of the aisle. anyone who is support broadband the past, astrologer and the north country halted when it came time for the vote we again the republicans and 131 democrats and we overturn the leadership by working together, a bipartisan affair. i've also worked with senator gillibrand. that was authorization and appropriation to compete for it. it's good for our country from a distance, area. work with peter watched to ensure we had funding for the storm relief. that was a bipartisan effort with peter welch. so i can tell you i absolutely believe even though you hear negative news, folks can come together, we've come together and we did and transportation of free-trade agreements and for advanced training lot and i will continue to will continue to do th
student in florida who said here's what she does to complete her assignments that require internet access. she drives to her local library at night after it is closed, and sits in the parking lot where she can get wi-fi hookup. well, that's not a good answer to the digital divide is a real issue and smart government action can help drive universal access. this is what drove the fcc last year to adopt a once in a generation comprehensive overhaul of the $4.5 billion a year universal service fund. we transformed it from a telephone focused program and a waste one at that, too inefficient program focused on universal broadband. so these pillars and priorities not only guide our policy work in the united states, a guide our international engagement in the itc sector. and they have in the past, historically, in ways that have had profound effect. to explain how, let me take a detour into the air by spring. in egypt last year when the government shutdown the internet and shut down global service, many asked how are they able to do that. what does it mean that they can do that. it's a very impor
at the state level and then they had, florida for instance, locally at 700 approved ses providers. which by the way, it's not a good position for us to being in that market either. but then districts would say we have hordes of ses providers come into their district and they had no control. so i think in close whenever i think south goa has that same, they kept ses but once against districts can pick the five providers they want to work with. and so i think we're seeing more and more, more and more districts now having more control in ses, if ses is still around in the air. editing is probably what we're going to move to, the state to continue to provide -- will then move to the districts that they can approve the providers that they work with as well. or have more input into what happened in the program because that wasn't happening before. that was a big criticism. >> we are just about out -- i do want to, as we look at a second obama term, if there was one change in federal policy that would help us both kind of cat the ability of the private sector to serve communities well, and to h
